Governments rely on their National Adaptation Plan (NAP) to make their communities, ecosystems, and economies more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

The NAP Global Network works with partners in the world’s most vulnerable countries to develop and implement these plans for a more secure future. Established in 2014, its secretariat is hosted by IISD.

Often underfunded and overstretched, the governments of developing countries need help to protect their citizens from a crisis not of their making. To name a couple...

In ETHIOPIA, with our support, the government is better positioned to implement social protection systems, introduce climate-smart agriculture, and improve access to potable water, while promoting gender equality.

In COLOMBIA, people fight every day to survive heatwaves, floods, and new diseases. We work with the government to pilot early warning systems that lessen the impact of heavy rains and drought on household water supplies and sewage systems.

Over 120 developing countries have started adaptation planning and urgently need continued support.

Today, the NAP Global Network connects over 1,200 participants from more than 140 countries.

From Knowledge to Action

We provide the resources and opportunities needed by governments to move forward with their vision for climate resilience. Our support includes:

  • Embedded expertise: Ensuring that our partners have the knowledge and skills they need to effectively adapt.
  • Learn about the most effective solutions: Bringing government actors from different countries together to learn about the most efficient practices for their situation.
  • Targeted analysis: Supporting evidence-based decision-making.
  • Operations and communications: Providing hands-on support when needed to help strategize, implement, and communicate adaptation actions.

Climate Change is impacting all aspects of life.

We work with different themes to make sure a country’s NAP addresses every major issue caused by climate change.

The Time to Act is now. Help us raise $5 million.

We work with countries that contribute the LEAST to global emissions, but are the MOST vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

There's a new sense of urgency and these countries need your support. Help us make a difference.
